My boyfriend and I went here July 25th for my birthday. Got there around 5:30 and were seated immediately and had our order taken in good time. Food arrived 15 mins later or so and was excellent, but we waited over 20 mins for a server to return to pack up remaining food and there was only a couple of... More

Large variety available. The menu has something for everyone. The food arrives quick and hot. It is always delicious. The service is usually good. The daily specials and soups are a favourite of mine. Check their Facebook page to see their daily special. The pizza is good for take out or in. They have deals on it one night a... More

Excellent ambiance, great appetizers - but the mains under delivered. I loved the deep fried pepperoni, and my wife loved the hummus with gluten free pita. The server told us most things could be made gluten free, but we were disappointed to find the soup, meatballs, pepperoni, hot hamburger gravy etc all had wheat. My wife settled for the chicken...

My husband and I stopped here during our honeymoon road trip. He ordered the special (North African vegetable soup and Tetrazzini with scallops and shrimp) and I ordered the vegan coconut curry. Both were fabulous! We ordered the brownie for dessert, a hurricane cocktail and Pinot Grigio and all were equally as delicious. Highly recommended!

The portions were good, and the prices were in line with Canadian prices in general. My husband had a sausage pasta dish, and I had a chicken lasagna. His was great, and I found mine to be only medium (the sauce seemed like canned mushroom soup, and too starchy). My Greek salad was excellent. If I get back to Sydney,... More

A small and inviting local restaurant with a huge menu to choose from. Almost anything was able to be made Gluten Free, the portions are big and the food is very tasty! Very, very good value. Great service. I wish we had been able to go again before we left.

Very warm and inviting restaurant. Plan ahead and make reservations because they are always busy. The food is amazing and unlike anything in Sydney. I would highly recommend the Mediterranean cheese dip. Also would recommend the roasted potatoes as a side. Very friendly staff.

I was disappointed that they no longer service pizza. But we had Spaghetti and Lasagna, and they were both great! The atmosphere was very nice also. But the location was a bit odd; it's not out of the way, but it's not really central either. Unfortunately we did not leave room for dessert as we had eaten earlier, so we... More
